Buffalo Trace Distillery Introduces O.F.C. Range Of Very Rare
And Collectable Vintage-Dated Bourbons
First Offering Only Available to Non Profits for Fundraising Efforts
This fall, Buffalo Trace Distillery released three unique vintage-dated bourbons honoring the National Historic Landmark’s original name - the O.F.C. Distillery bottle is a replica of an O.F.C. decanter dating back to the early 1900s found in the Buffalo Trace Distillery archives. Equally as impressive as the bottle is the display box in which the bourbon is presented. The dark wooden box prominently bears the O.F.C. name in copper, along with a copper plaque depicting the year the bourbon was distilled. Upon opening the revolving door on the wooden case, the bottle is proudly displayed on a small riser, commanding attention as its prized possession is revealed. A provenance card is inside each display box, containing the same information found on the back label. Finally, each box is then packaged in a tasteful cream colored bag to protect it from any damage before placing it into the shipping boxes.
The packaging for O.F.C. matches the splendor of the whiskey itself, in lead free crystal bottles with detailed fluting engraved into the mold. Glass artisans cut the shoulder facets using equipment created exclusively for Buffalo Trace Distillery. Each bottle then is manually polished to achieve maximum glass brilliance before in-laying cut copper lettering to spell out “O.F.C.” on the front. A paper label is then hand applied below with the vintage prominently noted, along with a label on the back of the bottle noting the milestones for the vintage year of the bottle. Our bottle is 1 of only 50 bottles dated 1982.
Valued at $10,000. (According to Buffalo Trace who also states that this bottle is one of the "rarest in the world".)
